"Now if you doubt this tale is so, I met that spook about a year ago.
I didn't stop for a second look - I made for the bridge that spans the brook!
For once you cross that bridge, my friend, the ghost is through, his power ends.
So when you're riding home tonight, make for the bridge with all your might.
He'll be down in the hollow there, he needs your head, look out, beware!
With a hip-hip and a clippity-clop, he's out looking for a top to chop,
So don't stop to figure out a plan, you can't reason with a headless man!"
~Bing Crosby, Walt Disney's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
This is a little MOC just in time for Halloween. Based on the famed "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving, it features a lanky Ichobad Crane escaping the wrath of the Headless Horseman over the covered bridge connecting the [Western] Woods with Sleepy Hollow. I focused on two elements with this creation - composition (the ground is not "floating" but instead it is [supposed to be!] a more artistic means of landscaping), and texture - notice the uneven tiles on the bridge's roof and the many studs in the landscaping and on the tree.
And remember - the horseman comes - and on Halloween night, he comes for you!
It really is amazing how you created something out of little precision made plastic bricks appear to be so dilapidated (I hope I spelled that right)! Your vision is, as usual extraordinary. Regards, Eric.
Oh, and here I thought the hand was supposed to be a bulge in his pants. He probably has a quill in his pocket or something. ;)
I like it

There goes another original idea for me, but this is better than I could have done. I really like it all, includeing your new style of minifigs. You make the best trees too. Love the bridge. I like the brook. Good job. ~Blake~
By adding you as a favorite builder, I think that should be congruent to commenting on every single one of your creations. Why don't I simply comment on them all? First, that would take a while. Second, with some of them I would most likely have a hard time saying what I like about it and actually leaving a proper comment. Because if I left "Awesome!" That would sound somewhat silly in my opinion. But truly, your creations are "Awesome!". So like I said, adding you as a favorite should be the equivalent of commenting on them all.
